Unfortunately, as with anything brick tiles can get dirty over time from dirt and dust that accumulates on them or spills.

Tools For Cleaning Brick Tiles

1) Have your tools ready – You will need a stiff brush, vacuum cleaner with brush attachment, bucket of water with soap (or cleaning agent), sponge mop or cloths soaked in soapy water as well as rags or paper towels. Make sure all of these items are close by because this will help speed up the process.

2) Once you have all of your tools laid out, sweep or vacuum the area first to get rid of any loose dirt and debris. This is a very important step as you would not want to push and loose debris in to the surface of the brick tiles.

3) Once all loose material is removed it is then best to use your chosen cleaning agent (mixed as per the instructions) and spray this on to the brick leaving it to work for 10-15 minutes. Once full covered it is then recommended to clean using a sponge in a circular motion.

4) The bricks should not be hand dried they should be left to dry naturally.

Sealing

5) Sealing brick tiles this is entirely up to preference but some customers choose to use a brick sealer on their brick tiles after cleaning them, this will lock in their natural beauty and also prevent the bricks from becoming stained with the likes of oils etc. When choosing a sealer there is generally two options "clear" and "Wet" a clear sealer offers a protective invisible coat and then wet look gives the bricks a sheen. As above always test products on an inconspicuous area first!
